Bosch ALS 2500 leaf vacuum
17 Mar 2016
By
, Surrey UK
" A nice product that is easy to use once assembled. The Bag is a little difficult to fit and remove as the length between the two 'fixing' points' on the bag is rather tight in measurement but may get easier with use. The machine is a nice weight and well balanced to hold for short times without the shoulder straps - the latter being easy to attach or detach as required. On first use the vacuum seems very strong and picks up dry leaves well. It remains to be seen how it performs with wet leaves. All in all a very pleasing machine. The reliability is unknown as I have not had it long! "

" Compared with my last garden vac and blower (a power devil - years old) this is brilliant. Even on the lowest power setting it manages to suck up gravel from the paths, so probably need to be careful.
Only minor complaint is some sort of cable tidy would have been useful, even if just a cheap plastic thing to stop cable getting tangled when stored away. "

" Having spent around three/four hours each Autumn clearing up my leaves I have just bought this machine, Instructions are a bit vague as they are illustrative only no text. However it took just ten minutes to work out and fully assemble. It took me 30 minutes to clear all the leaves up and empty them into the compost heap well macerated. Cant wait for next year!!! Make sure you get the harness at the right length and you will have no problem with weight issues even when bag full up. Good machine fro the money "

" Having previously used a cheaper model this vacuum/blower works really well. No blocking or clogging at all. Really powerful and used over a two hour period without much fatigue or frustration. Would recommend this over cheaper models, you get what you pay for and Bosch are pretty good. "

Good machine
9 Sep 2014
By
, Scunthorpe
" I just bought this machine after looking at several others on the Net. I'm very happy with it. The suction power is excellent. I have five large mature mountain ash trees in my garden and this garden vac lifts even soaked leaves and mulches them brilliantly. The mulch ratio is impressive and the bag will fill to the point of being almost too heavy to carry, it cuts the leave up so well.
The blower is good but I doubt I will use it much. It is a little bit of a faff to change from suction to blowing but this is because of the sensible concept that the motor gives full power on suction and blowing by simply changing which end of the motor assembly is used. Other vacs use diverted blown air as 'suction' (which it actually isn't) and thereby lose efficiency. This Bosch does NOT do that and is therefore great at both operations. Changing the nozzles only takes a minute anyway.
The machine is quite heavy and I use the shoulder strap every time. I suspect it might be a bit too heavy for an elderly gardener.
The zipper bag needs a good spray of silicone lubricant on the zip, otherwise the dust etc that it picks up get into the zip when emptying the bag.
Personally, I think this machine is an excellent buy for the money. "

" This product is great for sucking up leaves, however it did not reduce them down as much as I had hoped. Resulted in more time spent emptying the bag each time than collecting leaves. Could really do with a bigger bag than 45ltr, but can't see this is available separately to purchase. "

" Excellent. First one i've had, but Bosch has kept up with my expectations of them.
As for Acorns, well it was too much to expect to take them up into the bag, but it draws them into heaps! so that's Ok.

Blower Shredder
19 Oct 2015
By
, Bedfordshire
" On the whole a good product. Bought this to collect the horse Chestnut leaves from my driveway. My drive is shingle so the variable blow power is useful so not to blow shingle everywhere. However I couldn't easily suck up the leaves without the fear of sucking up shingle which could damage the blower mechanism. But sorted the job by blowing leaves into hardstanding corner.
The instructions for this product are not overly clear as not too much English text. Instead lots of diagrams which take a while to properly interpret.

Probably as good as they get .
12 Jul 2015
By
, Dorset
" Bought this machine on the strength of comments posted on both this site & others .
Some say it's difficult to assemble or change from blow to suck . Rubbish ! Easy peasy !
The machine is a fairly heavy compared to my previous model & the powerful motor does tend to make pointing the machine in a flexible direction difficult due to the high torque of the motor .
Perhaps the ladies would prefer the lighter cordless model but remember battery life is only about 10 minutes or so between charges.
,Do I regret buying this model ? No .
